Open Thursdays consultancies

Open Thursdays are weekly meetings open to artists, creators and developers from different disciplines of electronic art who want to work with open source hardware and software tools. In them, experts in technology and open source tools from Hangar Labs and the collectives-in-residence are available to exchange ideas, share resources, offer advice, solve doubts, or to make known what they are working on; favoring a space for the free transfer of knowledge.
